International SafetyNET Manual, 2017 IC908E
by IMO - International Maritime Organization
SafetyNET is an international automatic direct printing satellite-based service for the promulgation of Maritime Safety Information (MSI), navigational and meteorological warnings, meteorological forecasts, Search and Rescue (SAR) information and other urgent safety-related messages to ships and fulfils an integral role in the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).
This Manual describes the structure and operation of the International SafetyNET Service. It is intended primarily for national Administrations and registered information providers, but may also be useful to the mariner who requires more operational information than is found in manufacturers? equipment manuals.
